Becoming Better â Studentsâ of the Faculty of Management Studies, Benaras Hindu University, Varanasi.
It was my good fortune to visit Varanasi, also called as Kasi, otherwise popularly known as Benaras â the most respected place of worship of Lord Viswanath, for pilgrimage. Through the good offices of common friends, I was invited by Prof. S.K. Dubey, to address the students of the Faculty of Management Studies, of the University.
Very gratefully I accepted the invitation and addressed the students on my favorite topic âBecoming Betterâ. Due to the time constraint, I had to make a brief presentation. The presentation, used earlier at Vivekananda Institute of Human Excellence, Ramakrishna Math, Hyderabad, was used on this occasion. I have used English and Hindi to make my presentation, attract the attention of the students.
Becoming Better, aims at motivating people, irrespective of their age, stage, status, gender etc., to commit themselves to all round improvement, in all aspects and in respect of the multiple roles they are playing or are expected to play in their later life. Unless people get motivated, we cannot hope to have inspired and contributing citizens.
You would be better able to appreciate the beauty and the purpose of the presentation when both the audio version, uploaded to www.archive.org [please search for Prof. V. Viswanadham], and the relevant power point presentation that can be viewed at www.scribd.com [please search for Viswam.vangapally4581] and / or www.slideshare.net/viswanadham and taken together as a package.
Each time the presentation is made, as a teacher, I ensure that right from the introduction to the development of the theme, it is done differently, the examples are appropriate to the audience, the language style, and the mixture of local language like Hindi, along with the English â an attempt is made to create a unique blend.
This is being mentioned, so as to make it clear that you may not feel bored or disinterested, and by listening to two or more lectures on the same topic, presented before different audiences, at various places, you may actually obtain a better insight into the scope of the topic.
